a fundamental right to protect our families and our homes and our children. we'll see a president who stands with israel. clearly and unapologetically. instead of negotiating with terrorists, we'll rip to shreds this catastrophic iranian nuclear deal. [ applause ] we will defeat radical islamic terrorism and we will utterly destroy isis.
[ applause ] we will have a president who keeps us safe. to the soldiers and sailors, the air men and marines, the police officers and firefighters and first responders who risk their lives every day to keep us safe, we will have a commander in chief who has your back. [ applause ] jobs, freedom and security, that's what this next election is all about. in 1980 milton and rose freedom
wrote "free to choose." they explained the american free enterprise system has been the greatest engine for opportunity and prosperity that the world has ever seen. too much government can stifle opportunity. but if we get washington out of the way, then there is no limit to what we can accomplish. [ cheers and applause ] it's what allowed my dad to escape cuba and come to america with nothing, washing dishes making 50 cents a day to start a business and today to be a pastor traveling the country. [ applause ] it's what allowed my
irish-italian mom to become the first in her family to go to college, to smash glass ceilings by becoming a pioneering computer programmer. it's what allowed my wife, heidi -- >> heidi! [ cheers and applause ] [ crowd chanting "heidi" ] >> i may be biased, but isn't she going to make an amazing first lady?
[ cheers and applause ] >> we love you, wisconsin! >> she's the child of missionaries, my best friend in the world, and she's become a successful business leader, a loving mom and every day she's teaching our daughters, caroline and katherine, that strong women can accomplish anything in the united states of america. [ cheers and applause ] that's america. it's what we're fighting for. our children. our future.
and wisconsin has made clear we are free to choose. [ applause ] for centuries -- for centuries america has been a shining city on a hill, a beacon of liberty to the world, and we can and will be once again. [ applause ] so i ask you at home to join us as we continue to unite republicans and independents and libertarians and reagan democrats and americans who care about our future who want jobs, freedom and security, just as we've done in wisconsin, we're
so let me just say, hillary, get ready, here we come. [ cheers and applause ] god bless you! [ cheers and applause ] >> ted cruz celebrating a very big win in the state of wisconsin with his wife, heidi, the governor, scott walker, delivering a very, very important speech tonight. not so much going after his republican rivals, john kasich and donald trump, but speaking about where he's going, trying to stress the positive, if you will. let's get a key race alert right now. we projected that ted cruz is winner right now with almost 40% of the vote is in. can you see he has a commanding lead over donald trump, 52.3%, that's a majority. if that holds donald trump at 30.8%, john kasich a distant third with on 14.6%.
on the democratic side, bernie sanders with a third of the vote now in, we project he is the winner of the presidential primary with a majority 53.8% as of right now, 45.9%, bernie sanders the winner on the democratic side in wisconsin, ted cruz the winner on the republican side. bernie sanders is going to be speaking very, very soon. let's take a quick break. we'll hear from bernie sanders, his victory speech and much more after this. courtyard, the official hotel of the nfl,
and i want to remind you that no one's the same without the game. like @flagdad28, who tweets, "in a recent flag football game with my family, i ran up the score, pick-sixed my daughter 3 times, and blocked 8 punts. did i cross a line? flag, i get it. you simply wanted to recreate the thrill of the nfl... all over your family. don't fret: training camp opens soon. but, it might be a good time to spring for a puppy. ♪ he has a sharp wit. a winning smile. and no chance of getting an athletic scholarship. and that is why you invest.
the best returns aren't just measured in dollars. td ameritrade. they're lovin' their vegetables. this is huge news! it's all thanks to our birds eye chef's favorites side dishes perfectly sauced or seasoned. what are you..? shh! i'm live tweeting. oh, boy. birds eye. so veggie good. ♪rugreen presents the yardley's. ♪
sfx: leaf blower dad! sorry. this is more than a lawn. this is a trugreen lawn. live life outside with trugreen, america's #1 lawn care company. spring is on. start your trugreen lawn plan today. trugreen. live life outside. my name is jamir dixon and i'm a locafor pg&e.rk fieldman most people in the community recognize the blue trucks as pg&e. my truck is something new... it's an 811 truck. when you call 811, i come out to your house and i mark out our gas lines and our electric lines to make sure that you don't hit them when you're digging. 811 is a free service. i'm passionate about it because every time i go on the street i think about my own kids. they're the reason that i want to protect our community and our environment,
glad he's watching cnn for our projection. let's go to john king at the magic wall. let's talk about these two races. it's an important win for ted cruz, an important win for bernie sanders. is it a bigger margin than we thought? >> at the moment on the democratic side if you're looking right now, it's 89 points. 37% of the vote. bernie sanders needs that to grow. he needs that to grow because if it ends in 8 points -- senator cruz is up 20 points at the moment. it's disappointing for john kasich, who thought he could get a delegate win.
>> wbig win for scott walker. this is a map of the congressional district in washington. the statewide winner gets a bunch of delegates and three for each congressional district. donald trump is in play in this district here. you see the dark red. that's donald trump. he's in play, looks like he's going to win the northern district right up here and potentially in play for a third district here. maybe nine delegates for trump. better guess would probably be six. maybe nine. we'll watch the rest of the votes as we watch the statewide delegates come out. as dana was talking about earlier, the anti-trump forces wanted to keep him in single digits, below 15. as of right now, if this ends like we think it's going to end tonight, even if donald trump gets the missouri delegates that we have not awarded him yet because there's still some issue, donald trump will need 62% of the final delegates to get to 27. is that doable? yes. but he's only been winning 46%
of the delegates so far. a, it defies of track of the race so far and, b, senator cruz comes out with a good amount of momentum. an open convention is much more likely because of these results and donald trump likely picking up single-digit delegates. >> if trump will need 60% of the outstanding delegates, cruz will still need more than 80, 85%, right? >> ted cruz is not going to get to 1,237. it's his job as a politician, but he's not going to do it. let's look on the republican side. i'm going to be extremely generous to donald trump. i'm going give him a few more delegates out of missouri. >> hold your thoughts. bernie sanders ialking out. he always likes t interrupt john king over at the magic wall. there you see the senator with his wife with his wife, jane.
they're going to be there together. he's obviously very, very happy. he's won six of the last seven states he also won americans abroad. a lot of celebration going on in laram laramee, wyoming right now. let's listen in to bernie sanders. [ cheers and applause ] >> you know, i was told that there were about 5,000 people who participated in the last wyoming caucus. it looks like all of them are here tonight! thank you! thank you very much for coming out. and let me remind everybody that we've got a really important
caucus here on saturday. doors open at 9 a.m. let's be there. let's win in wyoming. now, i don't know if the audience here knows it, i don't see any tvs here, but it has been projected by i think all of the networks that we won in wisconsin! [ cheers and applause ] [ crowd chanting "bernie" ] >> now, let me say a word -- well, maybe two words, i don't
know, about what momentum is all about. momentum is starting this campaign 11 months ago and the media determining that we were a fringe candidacy. momentum is starting the campaign 60 to 70 points behind secretary clinton. momentum is within the last couple of weeks there have been national polls which have had us one point up or one point down. [ cheers and applause ] momentum is that when you look at national polls or you look at statewide polls, we are defeating donald trump by very significant numbers.
[ cheers and applause ] and in almost every instance in national polls and in state polls, our margin over trump is wider than is secretary clinton. with the victory in wisconsin tonight, and let me take this opportunity to thank the people of wisconsin for their strong support. [ cheers and applause ] with our victory tonight in wisconsin we have now won seven out of eight of the last caucuses and primaries.
and we have won almost all of them with overwhelming landslide numbers. [ cheers and applause ] what momentum is about is that at a time in contemporary politics when every major candidate has a super pac, we have said no to super pacs, said no to the billionaires who fund those super pacs -- [ cheers and applause ] -- and what we have done is in an unprecedented manner in american history, we have up to this point in the campaign
received over 6 million individual campaign contributions. [ cheers and applause ] anyone here know what the average contribution is? >> $27! >> that's exactly right. smart crowd. $27. this is a campaign of the people, by the people and for the people. we have decided that we do not represent the billionaire class, we do not represent wall street
or the drug companies or the fossil fuel industry. [ cheers ] and we do not want their money. [ cheers and applause ] what momentum is about is my belief that if we wake up the american people and if working people and middle-class people and senior citizens and young people begin to stand up, fight back and come out and vote in large numbers, there is nothing that we cannot accomplish. [ cheers and applause ] and what we have been seeing throughout this campaign is
extraordinary voter turnouts in state after state after state. and i am particularly grateful and pleased that at a time when many of the pundits said, you know, those young people, they don't want to get involved in politics, they're not really concerned about the major issues facing our country, they're too busy with their video games or whatever. well, you know what's happening? all over this country young people are standing up and they're saying you know what, we want to help determine the future of this country, which we are going to inherit. [ cheers and applause ]
what momentum is about is that all across this country the american people are looking around them. and they understand that real change in our country's history, whether it is the trade union movement, whether it is the civil rights movement, whether it is the women's movement, whether it is the gay rights movement, they understand that real change never, ever takes place from the top on down. it always takes place from the bottom on up! [ cheers and applause ] and today from coast to coast, and i've been from coast to coast, been to california, been
in maine and a whole lot of states in between and where people are saying that why is it in america we have grotesque levels of income and wealth inequality? why is it that the top 1/10 of 1% now almost own almost as much weather as the bottom 90%? why is it the great middle class of this country has been shrinking and almost all new income and wealth is going to the top 1%? the american people are asking why is it that women go to work tomorrow and they're earning 79 cents on the dollar compared to men? [ cheers ] people are asking how does it
happen that the united states of america, our great nation, is the only major country on earth not to guarantee paid family and medical leave. there are women giving birth in wyoming and wisconsin and vermont today but they're going to have to go back to work in two or three weeks because they don't have the income to take care of their family, which is why together we are going to pass three months paid family and medical leave. [ cheers and applause ] and the american people from coast to coast they're asking, yes, the affordable care act has
done a lot of very good things, thank you president oba, presid your leadership. but -- but in terms of health care, there is much, much more that has to be done. the american people are asking why does it happen that every other major country on earth, united kingdom, france, germany, holland, scandinavia, canada, every major country on earth guarantees health care to all of their people as a right except the united states, and together we're going to change that international embarrassment. [ cheers and applause ] and the american people are
asking and young people are asking why is it that when we are living in an increasingly competitive global economy, why is it that kids are graduating college 30, 50, $70,000 in debt? and in some cases, in some cases spending decades having to pay out -- pay off that debt. we should be rewarding people who get the education they need, not punishing them. [ cheers and applause ] and the american people are asking how does it happen when the scientists all over our
country who study climate change and scientists all over the world are in virtual unanimous agreement that climate change is real, that it is caused by human activity, that it is already causing devastating problems in our country and around the world, how do we have a republican party that refuses to even acknowledge the reality of climate change? [ cheers and applause ] the american people are asking how does it happen that we can spend trillions of dollars fighting a war in iraq that we
never should have gotten in in the first place. but that in flint, michigan and in cities all over this country, our inner cities are crumbling, unemployment off the charts, health care system not accessible, kids dropping out of high school, too, too many being arrested and sent to jail. how come we can rebuild the infrastructure of iraq and afghanistan but we cannot rebuild our own crumbling infrastructure? [ cheers and applause ]
the american people are asking as they assemble all over this country, why can we not end a campaign finance system which is corrupt and which is undermining american democracy? democracy is not a complicated process. it means that you have a vote and you have a vote and you have a vote and majority wins. what democracy is not about is billionaires buying elections. [ cheers and applause ]
the american people are asking another very important and profound question and that question is how does it happen in the wealthiest nation in the history of the world that we have more people in jail than any other country on earth? and what the american people are saying is that now is the time to invest in our young people in terms of jobs and education, not jails and incarceration. [ cheers ] and some of you have recently heard about the discovery and the revelations about the tax dodging that is taking place in panama, which is one of the
reasons that i oppose the free trade agreement with panama. and one of the reasons i was on the floor of the senate talking exactly about what i feared would happen and that is wealthy people and large corporations figuring out ways to avoid paying their fair share of taxes. and what the american people are asking is at a time of massive income and wealth inequality, how does it happen that you have large, profitable, multi-national corporations who in a given year pay zero, not a penny in federal income taxes?
[ crowd boos ] now, change, real change comes about, whether it is fighting racism, worker exploitation, sexism, homophobia, real change comes about when people stand up and they look around and they say, you know what, the status quo is not working, we can do better. [ cheers and applause ] and let me give you -- i can give you many examples but let me give you the most contemporary example of what happens when people stand up and fight back. if we were here in this beautiful auditorium five years ago, not a long time from an historical perspective and somebody were to jump up and
say, you know, i think a $7.25 federal minimum wage is a starvation wage and it has got to be raised to $15 an hour. now, somebody stood up five years ago and said that, the person next to them would have said you're nuts! $15 an hour, you want to more than double the minimum wage, you're crazy. maybe get it up to $8, $9 an hour, you're dreaming too big. sound familiar? you are unrealistic. it can't be done. think smaller. but then what happened is fast food workers, people working at mcdonald's, people working at burger king, people working at wendy's, they went out on strike, and i was very proud to join with those workers in
washington. [ cheers and applause ] and they went out and they said, fellow americans, we can't live on $7.25 an hour, we can't live on $8 an hour. you got to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. and they fought and they fought and then suddenly a few years ago seattle, washington, $15 an hour. [ cheers and applause ] los angeles, san francisco, $15 an hour. [ cheers and applause ] oregon, $15 an hour! and in the last several weeks in both california and new york governors signed legislation for
$15 an hour. [ cheers and applause ] what is my point? my point is that, yes, we can change the status quo when we think big and when we have a vision. [ cheers and applause ] now, i am not naive. i know the power of wall street and their endless supplies of money. i know that corporate america will shut down plants in america and move to mexico or china if they can make another $5 in profit. i know that billionaires are funding candidates whose job it is to represent the wealthy and the powerful. i know about the corporate media that will give us all of the
information we need except what is most important for working families. i know about all of that. but this is what i also know -- i know that what history is about that when people stand up and they say the status quo is not acceptable, we will not have children working in factories, we will not have working people on the job who have no power over those jobs, we will not continue to have segregation or racism or bigotry, we will not have women unable to vote or go to the schools they want or do the work they want. we will pass gay marriage in 50 states in this country.
[ cheers and applause ] so that is what i have learned from history, is that when we are prepared to think big, when we are prepared to take on the greed and recklessness of wall street, when we stand together and we don't allow the trumps of the world to divide us up by whether we were born in america or born abroad, whether we are muslim or jewish or christian -- [ cheers ] -- when we stand to the, whether we're gay or straight, male or female, yes, we can create a government that represents all of us and not just a handful of
wealthy campaign contributors. [ cheers and applause ] now, this campaign has won seven out of the last eight caucuses and primaries. with your help on saturday, we're going to win here in wyoming. [ cheers and applause ] and then we are headed to new york. and i know a little bit about new york because i spent the first 18 years of my life in brooklyn, new york. now, please keep this a secret,
do not tell secretary clinton. she's getting a little nervous and i don't want her to get more nervous, but i believe we've got an excellent chance to win new york and a lot of delegates in that state. [ cheers and applause ] and then we are going to head after some other states on the east coast out to the west coast. and we have an excellent chance to win in oregon and to win in california. [ cheers and applause ] and i think that a lot of these super delegates are going to be looking around them and that are going to be saying which candidate has the momentum? which candidate is bringing out
huge numbers of people and creating -- huge! which candidate can bring out large numbers of people? see, i can't use of word huge anymore, it's out of my vocabulary. but we will win in november if there is a large voter turnout. that's what always happens. democrats and progressives win when there is a large voter turnout. republicans win when people are demoralized. this campaign is giving energy and enthusiasm to millions of americans. [ cheers and applause ]
so i think the people of this country are tired of establishment politics and establishment economics. i think the people of this country are ready for a political revolution. [ cheers and applause ] and if you ignore what you hear on corporate media, the facts are pretty clear. we have a path toward victory, a path toward the white house -- [ cheers and applause ] -- and wyoming can give us an enormous boost forward if we win
here on saturday. we often win and almost always win when the voter turnout is high. we do poorly when the voter turnout is low. let us see on saturday a record breaking turnout here in the wyoming caucus. [ cheers and applause ] >> and you've been listening to senator bernie sanders speaking about his big victory in the state of wisconsin. we've been listening to him speak for more than 30 minutes now. we also earlier heard from senator ted cruz, also the winner on the republican side. big wins for both of these candidates. paul begala, we're not going to hear from hillary clinton and from donald trump. why not? is it a mistake for them not to come out? >> yes. you never miss a chance to speak
and expound on your message. it could be that both of them know new york and they're girding their loins -- i hate to talk about loins at this hour. >> nice visual. >> i want to come back to senator sanders. this is a win for him and it's important for him and his team and they worked hard on it. i don't think they changed the math a lick. he should get the coverage he's getting -- >> bernie sanders has just finished his speech. >> at a veteran speech righter, often times the thing -- most important thing is the thing that is not said. he never attacked hillary clinton. he's decided his message is better if his message is positive. he's trying to unite the party. this is remarkably different from the republican side.
>> donald trump's campaign has put out a statement referring to lying ted cruz. >> he called him a crook. >> the democratic party, they're having -- my uncle george is fighting he said god gave us -- buster the dog has eaten uncle george's hearing aid. >> you're apologizing to your uncle george who actually cannot hear you apologizing. >> he and my mother have been shouting results at each other. >> walk the dog. solve the problem. >> but you come back together when you're family. the most important thing that bernie did tonight is not attack hillary. >> we're going to take a short break and see what it means for
donald trump not to win tonight. we'll be right back. ♪ [excited crowd] hello! thank you. yes, thank you. now that we represent the bud light party, we need a little security. so we found the toughest person that we know. blam! ronda rousey you were all expecting a man, weren't you? typical. amy, amy will you read my screenplay? no questions! seth why don't you make better movies? hey, i said no questions! you're very good at this. when are you going to fight again? didn't i just say no questions? alright! alright!

very big night for ted cruz, winner of the republican primary in wisconsin and for bernie sanders, the winner of the democratic primary in wisconsin. i understand donald trump has issued a very tough written statement. what did he say? >> in this statement he's going not after just ted cruz but what he calls the party bosses. he said not only was he propelled by the anti-trump
super pac spending countless millions of dollars or false advertising about mr. trump, talking about ted cruz here, but he was coordinating with his own super pacs, which is illegal, who totally control him, ted cruz is worse than a puppet, he is a trojan horse being used by the party bosses attempting to steal the nomination from mr. trump. we have total confidence mr. trump will go on to withn in ne york where he has a substantial lead. we don't have any evidence that mr. cruz is -- he was just in washington, d.c., they tried to clear the air during that meeting but it's clear that there are still some leftover tensions as this is shaping up to contentipotentially be a con election. >> there are no plans for donald trump to speak publicly?
>> there are no plans for donald trump to speak publicly. he's turning himself attention to new york and california. these are the two largest delegate states left on the primary calendar. >> thanks very much. let's go to jake and dana. jake, not a congratulatory message from donald trump to ted cruz but the exact opposite. >> i wouldn't say the republican race has been the model of decor decorum. donald trump has one thing when he said pacs were attacking donald trump. more than $2 million were spent in negative attack ads against him just in the state of wisconsin. dana, that could be something -- we really haven't seen an onslaught like that so targeted, so focused in one state. jeffrey lord said earlier there was a moment where trump was i think watching tv and was just
stunned at what he was seeing when he was in wisconsin. >> it certainly was targeted, it was certainly very intense in wisconsin but i think really the main difference is that at least over the past couple of contests is that they were successful. when i say they, the never trump movement, they tried and they tried hard to bring him down and they weren't always that successful. maybe in the states that weren't winner take all, they robbed him of some delegates. this is a place where they worked very hard. i know in talking to strategists for the never trump super pac, one of the big ones, they tested the messages, they were very targeted in how they did it. he was right. they were very, very aggressive about it to say the least. >> as we saw from cater packer-gauge, one of the head honchos, they're claiming
credit. another thing to pay attention in the statement of donald trump, it's a new line of attack on ted cruz. we've seen him going after him calling him not an american citizen, saying lying ted, et cetera. now he's saying he is worse than a puppet, he is a trojan horse for republican establishment members. wolf. >> that's a very, very serious charge. it's a new one i suspect as well. let's take a quick break. much more coming up. can donald trump get to 1,237, the magic number, following his defeat in wisconsin? we'll be right back.

of the wisconsin republican primary. he has 50.2% to donald trump's 32.8%, kasich with only 14.6%. on the democratic side, 67% of the vote is in. bernie sanders 55.8%, hillary clinton 43.9%. he's ahead, bernie sanders, by almost 75,000 votes. a big win for bernie sanders in wisconsin. let's go over to john king. on the republican side, now that ted cruz has won wisconsin, it's going to be a little bit harder for donald trump to reach that magic number of 1,237, the delegates he needs at the republican convention in cleveland to automatically get the nomination. >> it is. and donald trump is the only candidate still in the race with a plausible scenario but difficult scenario. ballpark right now, wolf, donald trump needs 62% of the remaining delegates to get to the magic number of 1,237. te
